Dorothy – Black Tar & Nicotine lyrics

[Verse 1]
Raised myself for a million lies
I could sell religion to Jesus Christ
A broken home, I left behind
Gave up everything for a couple of lines

I know my time is growing near
My heart is empty and there's no tears
I wasted so many years
Lost in the bottle 'till I disappeared

[Chorus]
Heading down the same routine
My throne is high just like a king
But black tar and nicotine
Shot me in the heart and killed my dreams

[Verse 2]
The world is bitter cold
Filled my pockets with blood and stone
The streets I grew up on, I called home
Friends I had left me long ago

[Chorus]
Running far and in-between
I had it all at seventeen
But black tar and nicotine
Shot me in the heart and killed my dreams

[Verse 3]
One day heaven came to take my pain
With a fist full of pills and a needle stuck in my vein
Tears roll down like sweat on my face
I didn't know what to do 'cause I was afraid

[Bridge]
I'm sitting alone in this motel room
Paper thin walls and a rack for my shoes
Don't know where I'm going next
Now I lay here in this bed

[Chorus]
'Cause black tar and nicotine
Shot me in the heart and killed my dreams
'Cause black tar and nicotine
Shot me in the heart and killed my dreams
Black tar and nicotine
Shot me in the heart and killed my dreams
Black tar and nicotine
Shot me in the heart and killed my dreams
